I am in historic (JFK and Jackie used to breakfast here) Martin's Tavern in Georgetown, breakfasting with NBC's Willard Scott. He is here to talk about his new book, The Older the Fiddle, the Better the Tune: The Joys of Reaching a Certain Age (Hyperion, 224 pages, $22.95), but mostly he's here just to talk. "People are uptight ever since 9 / 11," he said. "Something's wrong. I guess it's because everyone's nervous. It's almost as though road rage has moved into street rage and office rage.

RECENTLY I found myself in a deep nostalgia wallow as a result of two occurrences:(1) Timothy Leary went up to that Big Volkswagen Microbus in the Sky.(2) I turned 49. This means I'm almost 50, which is halfway to the stage in life where a person can wind up on the Willard Scott Birthday Segment of the "Today" show, the one where they show a picture of an extremely senior citizen who looks like "Juanita," the semi-preserved 500-year-old frozen Inca woman unearthed last year, and Willard says: "Happy birthday to Mrs. Claudia A. Smoogent!

THEY don't tell you the real truth about health care in this country," Peter Connole told me. "The reason health care costs so much is that people don't want to die."I said, "That's a given, but I don't understand what it's got to do with the spiraling costs of medicine.""In days gone by Americans did not have the option. They just died at home or on the golf course, and everyone at the funeral parlor agreed that it was 'God's will.' Nowadays citizens insist on staying alive no matter what it costs the taxpayers.

Almost 15 years since he first sat in it, Bryant Gumbel is today vacating the host chair on NBC's "Today," leaving under his own power, with nary a hint of the cattle prod used on some of his predecessors.Did anyone ever suspect it would happen any other way? After the debacle that followed their roughshod treatment of Jane Pauley a few years back, there's no way the honchos at NBC were going to push Gumbel out the door. And any attempt to treat him the way Deborah Norville was treated, hung out to dry as the sacrificial lamb to her bosses' boneheadedness, probably would have resulted in bloodshed at Rockefeller Center.
